Building resilience is a skill anyone can learn. In this workshop we'll take a closer look at the four pillars of resilience that are necessary for growth in times of stress. We'll identify your specific stress style to better understand what unknown stressors may exist in your life and how you can identify what you need in order to build this important skill.

- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is an approach to counseling that focuses on balancing the dual goals of trying to change while also accepting things as they currently are. This interplay between change and acceptance informs most of the goals of DBT.
- DBT was developed especially to help people who have longstanding difficulties with managing intense emotions, who deal with nonsuicidal self-injury, and those with a trauma history.
This approach emphasizes learning concrete skills in four main areas:
- Mindfulness - focusing on the present instead of getting carried away by intense emotions;
- Interpersonal effectiveness - asserting and protecting your own needs while also respecting those of others;
- Distress tolerance - keeping emotional crises at a manageable level so that you can make better choices about how to cope; and
- Emotion regulation - how to reduce your vulnerability to intense emotions.
